Iowa is the center of the political universe today, as its presidential caucuses start the 2016 election cycle. But Ohio Governor and Republican presidential candidate John Kasich is on the other side of the country.

While his GOP rivals are in Iowa for the presidential caucuses, Kasich continues to focus on next week's primary in New Hampshire.

Kasich yesterday visited a New Hampshire Elks lodge, saying that if elected president he'd push Congress to freeze every federal regulation not dealing with health or safety for a year.

Kasich has three New Hampshire events planned for Monday.

The average of several national polls has him running around seventh place, although he is polling better in New Hampshire.
